Hello Ladies and Gents,
Gonna use this to intro myself a little since I am new....feel free to skip and look at pictures
First time build log, First time wall build and a bunch more first, get the popcorn and sit back to watch me fall all over myself during my first big build.
Doing a C-pillar wall in my 91-92 Rodeo, mainly doing this build to break ground. I have never done a build this large and I have never done some of the things needed to complete this build. So I am using it as my beginners project. I have spent the last 12 years on/off installing my own electronics and friends stuff, everything from basic upgrades to TVs and under the window multi woofer enclosures, and have been doing research and studying the whole time. I figured it was time to step my game up and I came up with the plan to do a budget wall build and go about it piece by piece taking notes the whole time. I am hoping that by the end of this I will be ready for some big boy equipment.
So, on to the good stuff..This is my Frankinbeast - I call it "WhiteNoise"
It is composed of all the audio stuff I collected whilst being broke as a joke....
All work is done by me at home, exhaust was only thing, I borrowed my buddies shop so I could use the lift and not weld laying on my back.

-New windshield 3mnths, same crappy tan interior that came in it....FML is not Priceless

You can see my doors with just the 6x8s
Here is when I first put in the PX4.580
Wire Spagetti you can see 3" tweeter horn with the crossovers I soldered on the back
following pic is my dad cutting hole for 10", he cut that one I cut the other one.
I mocked the whole box up and put sub in and everything before disassembling and beginning fiberglass and Bondo.
The entire box will be fiber glassed and then Bondo where needed and upholstered so I don't need it to be perfect.
More to come....being lazy on uploading pictures.
But between the fiberglass that is done so far and all the metal corner bracket -roughly 30 brackets inside and out lol-, then 2" screws here and there and 2 - 5/8's threaded rods -one up and one side2side-
